The Essential Salve

I burned myself on my oven so after putting ice on the burn I immediately put The Essential Salve on my burn. I kept putting it on throughout the day and every day for a week. This was the best thing I have found for burns. I love it. Also use it on cuts and scratches. I will always have this product handy.

Essential Salve

This salve is truly amazing! I’ve already given several tins of this to family members. They tell me it works on about everything that bothers them on their skin. I will definitely keep some on hand at all times. Thank you for a great, natural product!

That's so awesome to hear! thanks for sharing Dawn!
Even as the maker of this product, I get so amazed at the random things people tell me it helps them with.
Thanks, also for sharing with your family!

Essential Salve to the Rescue

I did a whole bunch of sawing and my right arm was sore enough that I had difficulty getting to sleep due to the pain. I tried arnica gel and it didn't help at all. Then I remembered The Essential Salve. It felt great going on and smelled great as well. And it worked! It dulled the pain enough to let me sleep! I only needed it two nights in a row and after that I was fine. Thanks Mountain Mel's!

Essential Salve is Amazing

I have a few tins of Essential Salve and everyone in the house uses it a few times a day. It's lovely stuff: powerful but not greasy and it has a light, herbal scent from essential oils. I'm planning to order some as gifts. Great stuff!

Amanda (Albany, US)
Best for ALL skin things

I have tried A LOT of skin salvbes, but this one is by far the best I have tried yet. Been suing it a few months now, and it is great for skin that is dry, itchy, bug bitten, irritated, it worked on soothing my face after a breakout, works awesome on razor burn, after gardening--you name it, it works. So glad I tried it!!

Healing at its best!

I love this salve for the nicks, small burns and seasonal dryness between my fingers.
Works great on grandkids little outdoor scraps as well. I feel like it does help those oven and woodstove burns heal faster.
A good lightweight item for camping too, for those branch rashes!
